Aigues Morte
The walled town of Aigues Morte makes great vacation sightseeing in the 13th Century fortified town located in the Petit Camargue of Provence in Southern France.

The Medieval town of  Aigues Morte served as a port for  the Seventh Crusade of 1248 and the Tenth Crusade of 1270 which left for Jerusalem from Aigues Morte.
The city walls measuring more than a mile, 5,413 feet, were completed by 1300 AD.  The walls now offer visitors a  walk above the town the length of the perimeter.    
Constance Tower, named after a Huguenot prisoner, (late 1500s) was once part of a castle completed in 1248 AD by Louis the IX, locally known as St Louis.
The tower is open for visits.  
Religious wars were fought in the area between French Catholics and Protestant Huguenots during the later half of the 1500s.
From the high walls of the town the lagoons of the Camargue are visible.   The shallow lakes of the Camargue serve to evaporate sea water in the making of salt.  The lakes stand out on David Hilbert colors the lagoons are evaporating Mediterranean Sea water.  The Camargue has been noted, since Medieval times, for salt production.
